Edge of Escape by Debra Chapoton, reveals the fractured heart of Eddie, an emotionally impaired 18-year-old who has spent most of his school years in special education classes. Placed there by an over protective mother who also blames her son for his unintentional part in his father’s death, Eddie is kept separated from normal student interactions. Eddie’s guilt and his place among the unaccepted serve to keep him invisible to the rest of the students, especially the popular ones . . . like Rebecca. His obsession for her compels him to devise a plan to win her over. What should have been appropriate advances become, for Rebecca, the terror of stalking and abduction. He drugs her, abducts her and locks her away. She escapes, but that is part of his plan as he pretends to be her knight in shining armor. Throughout her ordeal there are flashbacks into both Rebecca’s and Eddie’s lives and how those lives have been intersecting all through their school years. If she falls for the fragile spirit who stalks her, does love erase evil intent? If she fails to see the innocent infatuation for what it is, will she be responsible for the inevitable tragedy that foreshadows their tangled fate?
What they're saying about it:
"This novel is a twisting turning adventure full of angst, love, curiosity, and suspense. Each and every page pulls the reader deeper and deeper into the minds and worlds of Debra Chapoton's characters. Having read both editions, the paperback and the Kindle edition, I was very pleased with the differences. The Kindle edition is the original story, the manuscript, and the paperback is the final revised edition. Both versions were equally enjoyable yet strikingly different. I would recommend this book to any person, older child and young adult alike who simply likes to read for the sake of reading. I am very happy with my purchase and cannot wait to see what else is created from the mind of this talented author."--Amazon Reviewer
"Edge of Escape will keep you on the edge of your seat. You won't be able to decide whether to boo Edward, or root for him. As the mother of teen daughters myself, I so wanted to see Rebecca escape; at the same time I had so much compassion for Edward that I almost wanted him to win her over. Debra Chapoton has done a fantastic job in getting into the mindset of this disturbed young man, and taking the reader along for the ride."--Amazon Reviewer
